Where I've Been

 

Favourite Holidays

 

Kuala Lumpur & Tioman Island, Malaysia

This country is not only a tropical paradise it is also a unique blend of cultures.
My partner and I spent our first two days in the busy metropolis Kuala Lumpur before moving on to the secluded little known island of Tioman.
An idyllic location for scuba dive enthusiasts as it is one of the few places that has been affected by coral bleaching in the South China Sea. It also doubles as a special island getaway, with its cyrstal clear waters, gorgeous beaches and wonderful jungle hikes.

Egypt

A country that has captured my imagination for as long as I can remember. From stories of an ancient race, architectural beauty and of course a legacy of makeup.
As part of a travel tour group, I spent a couple of days cruising up the River Nile, taking in the splendour that the Jewel of Egypt has to offer.
This was coupled with visits to the Great Pyramids of Giza, a breathtaking hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings at sunrise and indulging in the scrumptious local cuisines.

Croatia & Montenegro

My time in Croatia started in Split where I embarked on a week long sail that ended in Dubrovnik. 
Every stop along the way was like something off a postcard, with Dubrovnik being the most breathtaking of all. The fortified walls that encapsulate the city lend a 360 degree vantage point from which to view this amazing city.
Having never heard of Montenegro before landing in Croatia, I took the opportunity to do a day trip there. One of the stops was to the medieval town of Kotor, nestled into the base of the rugged mountain side overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
While it once was a trading port, what really resonated with me was that it was known for its cats. You could find them lounging around, sleeping under the market stalls or playfully teasing tourists trying to give them attention.
